One insider said that Merryl Tisch, the chancellor of the Board of Regents who has a good relationship with Bloomberg, is likely to be a key influence on Steiner.
"She put him in there," said the insider. "Believe me, she's going to have a lot to say."
Make no mistake, if Steiner ever wants to work in New York City ever again, this waiver for Black is a done deal.
It's interesting that the Murdoch Post is as open about the corruption that infects the Board of Regents as they are in this article.
By writing that Merryl Tisch "has a good relationship with Bloomberg" and is "likely to be a key influence on Steiner," they are saying quite nakedly that the system is corrupt, these people are Bloomberg's shills and they're all involved in, at the very least unethical behavior, if not out and out crookery.
